I agree. Encouraging program. One thing that struck me was how confident Dr. Silverman was about their research, and that immune system dysfunctions certainly exist, and he basically said that XMRV may or may not be a causative factor, however the decision to start and antiretrovirals is a decision for a medical doctor and the patient to carefully decide. good understanding of the disease symptoms, and even empathy for the patients!
It was great to hear their comments about the overwhelming responses from patients they have gotten at WPI, and even the radio interviewer (forgot his name) commented about the overwhelming response to their last program with WPI! I also was impressed with Mike Hillerby. Great person to have out at the forefront of marketing and fundraising.
One thing I did not understand completely was -- is the WPI clinic going to be the solely for clinical trials, or are they going to treat patients not in their clinical trials also?
